Just Getting Started

A few groups will make their 2018 BOA debut this weekend on FloMarching, but this won't be the last time we see them this season.

Homestead (CA) is taking their show "Singularity" all the way to Indianapolis in November for the Bands of America Grand National Championships. They will perform their show at 1:00 PM PT this Saturday in prelims and will definitely be looking for that second performance in regional finals. The group finished in 5th last season but could be looking at a top 3 finish on Saturday.

The King's Academy (CA) will also be performing again later this season in BOA competition. They will head down to southern California for the second and final California regional of the 2018 season. The King's Academy will perform at 11:15 AM PT this Saturday.
